You, as HR Manager or Risk Management Personnel, need to know if that resume you are looking at is legitimate for employment purposes. Is the person’s background everything it says it is? You may indeed be a contractor in charge of a large project that must be finished on schedule and done right.
Your reputation hangs on how effectively you evaluate a potential employee’s reputation. If you make a mistake, your reputation is on the line.
If you are in a high-end retail industry, you definitely want to know if there is a criminal background. In fact, you don’t want to hire an employee who might steal from the company to sell on eBay or Craigslist for a side income. So, you want to make sure there is a clean record. If there is a license required in your industry, you also want to make sure it is current.
Specific Skills Required for Employment Purposes
If your potential hire is applying for a job requiring specific skills, you want to make sure that the past employment and school records reflect some kind of pathway indicating that the person probably does have the skills necessary.
If you are a contractor with a multi-million dollar project, you don’t want to take on someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. For example, the temp hire who walked off of the beams in the attic to drop down through the ceiling. Of course, you want to make sure that your new employee is clean of drugs.
